In brief: Strep
Strep throat can make you feel pretty lousy and flu-like.
Similar between strep and flu are fever, muscle aches, and a general feeling of "unwellness". While strep throat features a sore throat, this is often not seen in flu. Flu also features a heavy cough, which is usually not seen with strep throat.
